A friend of mine posted this in our group to day....I absolutely love it

I didn't write it but I did add some lines to it..... I remember how it
touched me... maybe it will do the same for someone else:


To be an adult, to not be afraid to speak my mind, to be open minded,
to be insightful, to be understanding, to standup, to be a man, to be a
child, to be an artist, to be alive, to be involved, to be musically
inclined, to be lazy, to be energetic, to be loving, to be respectful,
to be disobedient, to be hateful, to be mean, to be nice, to be sexy,
to be secure, to be perverted, to be kinky, to be tied up, to be
unlocked, to be unkind, to be uncooperative, to be unlikable, to be
stupid, to be ignorant, to be rude, to call out, to punish, to be
punished, to be submissive, to be dominant, to be soft, to be hard, to
be strong, to be weak...

I am who I am because I make my own choices.

I choose all of these things in life-and they make me-Me. Not you...You
choose who you want to be, how you want to be and how you want to be
seen and in the end if that is what you wish-then it will be...
I am who I am because I make my own choices.
But if you choose any of the above-we will be the same, we will believe
the same, we will feel the same and we will be connected in some aspect
of life or another-so don't depict me as something so different, so
taboo, so wrong or so right when and if you share my choices.

I am who I am because I make my own choices.

I choose to speak as an adult, to use my words, to explore my feelings,
to admit when I am wrong, to understand why I am wrong, and to correct
my wrong filled paths. I choose to explore the feelings I have hurt,
and understand them, to look at people for who they are and by what
actions they have showed me, I choose to do all this-because in life-it
is expected. I choose to be a non-selfish, non-bratty person. I choose
to explore people and learn their traits, their personalities and their
faults. I do not exploit them with attempts of getting attention...I do
not try to make people mad, I only bring to the attention that we all
act, feel and see differently sometimes, and we choose this.

I am who I am because I make my own choices.

I do not point fingers at those whom are less fortunate, or have
disabilities or who are not as "rich" in character as others. I do not
seek fame, fortune and or anything that would "better" situations, I
seek self happiness and explore it with others, I give my respect,
until it is used against me, I will not any longer.

I am who I am because I make my own choices.

I am as proud of my successes as I am of my failures, for I have
learned that you can not have one with out the other.

What do you choose?

I am not going to speed so that the police can stop me and I am not going to offer anyone a ride......

Do you have multiple copies of any of your books?
If so, why? Absent-mindedness? You love them that much? First Editions for the shelf, but paperbacks to read?
If not, why not? Not enough space? Not enough money? Too sensible to do something so foolish?

I have OFTEN bought multiple copies simply because I will be intrigued by the story again and not realize that I have read the book until I am 20-30 pages into. Historical romance authors get me like this all the dang on time because they change covers.....
